The Academy Of Vocal Arts to Present Tchaikovsky's EUGENE ONEGIN

The Academy of Vocal Arts will present Tchaikovsky's beloved Eugene Onegin, for four performances only January 22-29, 2022.

Tatiana declares her love for the mysterious Eugene Onegin. He carelessly dismisses her, and sets into motion a tale of love and regret. Tchaikovsky's masterpiece will transport you to the country homes and palaces of Russia in the 19th century, and engulf you with beautiful melodies and unforgettable characters.

This is a semi-staged piano production, sung in Russian with English supertitles. All performances will be held at AVA's Helen Corning Warden Theater.

AVA alumnus Richard Troxell ('92) directs this production, and José Meléndez is the pianist. AVA also welcomes new faculty member Dr. Julia Zavadsky, who is the Russian Diction Coach and involved in this production.

AVA dedicates this production in memory of Ghenday Meirson, who was a fixture of Philadelphia's classical music community and AVA's beloved Russian Repertoire Vocal Coach. Mr. Meirson passed away last spring, and his presence is greatly missed. He inspired countless Resident Artists with his immense musicianship and his commitment to their development. Ghena was a friend to all - he brightened and brought joy to every room he entered.

Eugene Onegin is generously sponsored by Walter and Alice Strine, Esqs.
